ACP Street Team Styled Shoot featuring Blush N' Beauty Boutique

This session was steaming. Literally. We were trying to stay in the shade most of the day but as the photographer doing this shoot the heat drained me. With that being said I am so ready for fall and all the cool temperatures that come with it! Planning what the girls wore for the shoot was interesting and fun. We went to the boutique the Thursday before the shoot and the plan was to only do one outfit. Once the girls started looking at the clothes and deciding what to wear they wanted to do two outfits. We are thankful for Candace Brockman who generously let our team model her Fall clothes from Blush N’ Beauty Boutique.

This was an awesome experience and opportunity to go to Shaker Village with my girls. Four of the girls weren’t able to attend and we sure did miss them but they will be attending this month’s styled shoot and it isn’t local either. Can you take a guess where we are going? Of course I will do as many Hippy Van sessions for any senior that is interested!

Country Elegant Kentucky Wedding @ Red Barn Rd.

This day was a day that I didn't want to end. Brianna was so laid back and let me do what I do. We were right on schedule and ahead as a matter of fact. Both families were welcoming and made us feel right at home. It was a lovely day to get married and a lot of friends and family came from all over to witness something so special and holy as this. To watch a man and woman become Husband and Wife. It was a beautiful ceremony and reception right in their backyard on their family farm where they can forever cherish the place their marriage began. I am counting my blessings after having the opportunity to work with this couple. The photos from their day tell a great story and I am so happy to have captured the day in every aspect

Campus Proposal @ Campbellsville University

Today was reservd for at least three months. My classmate John Chewning who I have known all through my childhood though school and church asked me for info for a 2 hour shoot on such a specific date and time. July 20th, @ 2. SOOO I made it happen. I was very curious and I had known of him being in a long relationship of at least 2 years.

Time passed and we stared to plan locations and outfits.I finally asked John if we was proposing and he said that was the plan but he would get back to me about it. A week before the shoot he told me his proposal plans of asking her where it all began. These Steps at Campbellsville Univerity where the baseball and football fields meet.He explained how they got to talking and now here we are in the middle of their shoot in the very same spot.

We planned it all out and checked the lighting for the location earlier that week. The shoot was right in the middle of a day so it was a bit different and a challenging to the light I typically shoot in, It wokred out great though. We stayed in the shade as most as we could. It is July. So it’s really hot. The clouds began to move in for like 20 minutes when we got closer to the spot John had planned on asking Rae. That’s when we headed to the steps for a few poses and then the moment.

John had Rae read a passage from 1 Corinthians 13. On the top of the page wrote “Will you Marry Me?” Once Rae was done reading the passage John got down on one knee and asked her out loud, She began to cry and said yes mutiple times. She was so overwhelmed with joy she was shaking and couldn’t stop crying.

We took a break to let reality set in and to adore the ring. I am so happy and blessed to have been able to capture this special moment in time for someone I have known for so long! I am greatly excited for John and Rae’s new adventure they are now on together!!

What to wear for your engagement shoot?

Selecting your engagement wardrobe can be difficult sometimes. You don’t want to wear what everyone else has wore in their photos.

Think of it like putting a room in your house together. You want all the colors to compliment each other. Everyone’s home is of course different just like our styles in clothing and accessories. I want your photos to express your tatse and tell the vibe of our shoot.

Colors are everything! We want your outfits to flow, to be comfortable, complimentary colors, coordinate earth tones!

I have provided “ What to wear Guides” on ACP’s Pinterest acct for inspiration. https://www.pinterest.com/allenacoxphotog/what-to-wear/

Couples/Engagement Guide for your booked shoot.

Need Style assistance?

If you just can’t decide and have to many options bring them all to the shoot or schedule a meeting before the shoot with me to help guide you in the direction you have in mind. I can help curate a wardrobe based on your needs, body type, and personal style.

Monday Proposal @ Kentucky Native Cafe

Last week I got a text from a good friend of mine Meg Miller Januski! I have worked with the Januski’s since 2015 capturing her daughter’s senior photos! In the past year I have captured many photos for Meg and her growing business @DoorCandybyMeg. It has been an awesome journey getting to know them like family. The exciting news I had been waiting to hear…” Jordan is going to propose to Sarah on May 20th. Can you be there? “ OF COURSE I CAN!”

I arrived an hour and a half early.The plan was to scout a place for them where I could hidden from them but I could see them for the shots.The proposal didn’t go as planned. SO where I am hiding at waiting for them to arrive was called the potting shed. It was out of the way off to the side. I thought it was perfect!!! I am watching the cafe to see if they are in line to order and I am getting antsy. It was after our arrival time that had been discussed. I look back over my shoulder and there comes Jordan and Sarah in a garden behind the potting shed. I high jack it to the other side of the Cafe’s dining area where it is grown up with shrubs and trees to hide! I sit there until I see them go to the line and move over to this bush where I can stand. Hoping they will go on the other side of the bush and sit. I was wrong. They came right towards me. Sooo I had to get on all fours and crawl around this big bush while everyone is thinking I am crazy. They finally sit and I position myself again behind the tree where I can stand now. Jordan went and got their food and when he went to sit. POP. The Question.

She said”What are you doing?.. “Yes”

Props to Jordan for finally pulling one over on Sarah.

After food and drinks we then did some engagement pictures to show off the ring!! This family is special to me and getting to be apart of something so memorable humbles me. What an incredible way to start off the week!
